Britain “Girls Aloud” band singer Sarah Harding has died of br*ast cancer at age 39. She died on Sunday 5th September, her mother said.
Her mother Marie announced the news on Instagram, describing her “beautiful” daughter as “a bright, shining star”.
In a post next to a black and white image of Harding, her mother wrote: “It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away.
“Many of you will know of Sarah’s battle with cancer and that she fought so strongly from her diagnosis until her last day. She slipped away peacefully this morning. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past year.
It meant the world to Sarah and it gave her great strength and comfort to know she was loved.
I know she won’t want to be remembered for her fight against this terrible disease. She was a bright, shining star and I hope that’s how she can be remembered instead.” She wrote.

Harding revealed in August 2020 that she had been diagnosed with the disease. According to Sarah, the disease had spread to other parts of her body.
Harding also wrote in her autobiography, Hear Me Out, about how she initially put off getting medical advice when she first found lumps under her arm in December 2019.
She eventually saw a doctor who advised her to schedule an MRI scan, but then “coronavirus hit and everything either went into slow motion or stopped altogether”, she wrote.
“I was aware that I needed to get this health issue sorted, but with everything that was going on, it was tough.”
She said the pain continued getting worse. “One day I woke up realising that I’d been in denial about the whole thing. Yes, there was a lockdown, yes, there was a pandemic, but it was almost as if I’d been using that as an excuse not to face up to the fact that something was very wrong.”
Harding shot to fame in 2002 as a contestant on Popstars: The Rivals – an ITV talent show which aimed to find both a new girl band and boy band
Sarah was a band member of Girls Aloud, Britain’s biggest-selling girl group of the 21st Century. The band sold over 4.3 million singles and four million albums. They scored 21 UK top 10 singles between 2002-2012, including four number ones.
Meanwhile, in 2011 Harding went into rehab for depression and alcohol addiction. This was after the end of her four-year relationship with DJ Tom Crane, to whom she was engaged. In 2017, she won Celebrity Big Brother.
